Watch A Great Big World’s Joyful ‘I Really Want It’ Video – Premiere

The band recently quit their day jobs. Here’s how they reacted

Late last year, New York-based pop duo A Great Big World struck Top 40 gold with their song “Say Something,” a soaring ballad that featured Christina Aguilera. Since then, they released their debut album Is There Anybody Out There?, which cracked the Billboard top 10 – and their new found success has afforded new luxuries that they’re expressing in this new video for “I Really Want It.”

“We had recently quit our day jobs and were ‘full-time’ musicians and writers for the first time,” says A Great Big World’s Ian Axel. “We were stepping into a new role in life and really honing in on our dreams. This was us venting and sort of rebelling against the norm and what was expected of us. It was a way to tell ourselves that we could have it all if we wanted it.”

The duo currently have a handful of club dates booked for March as well as a slot at Deleware’s Firefly Festival this June
